California Poppies Sketch from Artist K Joann Russell

"California Poppies Sketch"
4 x 6" acrylic on watercolor paper

This little watercolor is a sketch from the design project I've been working on. I focused on the yellow and orange colors more than defining the flowers petal by petal. If you look click on the image and look closely you'll see my pencil lines indicating basic shapes for the colorful flowers.

I think I like my previous poppies sketch from a previous post. Painting in a washy watercolor style with acrylic paints is different for me. When using acrylics I customarily paint opaque shapes with visible brushstrokes. This is a good illustration of painting techniques.
